Just like a Blacksmith on his anvil, your photographs need to be forged in fire. A seemingly destructive process that creates a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Often times we need to think like the Blacksmith and destroy our images to refine them into a work of master craftsmanship. Join us with Blake Rudis as he shows us how he forges his images with the Topaz Product Line.

Blake is a 3 time self-published author and the founder of EverydayHDR.com & HDRInsider.com.  He has recently developed Zone-Edit.com.  This site is devoted to his Photoshop post processing technique that utilizes the limitless potential of the Zone System and the power of Photoshop to capitalize on the contrast in any image.
